Great season, tough ending.
That’s what happened to North Hollywood High on Saturday in the City Section Division II baseball championship, as the Huskies lost 2-0 to Wilson of L.A.
“It was just a great feeling to end your career at Dodger Stadium,” shortstop Jonathan Linares said. “It’s a career highlight.”
North Hollywood managed a total of two hits off Wilson right-hander Andrew Urbina, who pitched a complete game and struck out three while not allowing a runner past second.
The Huskies had their best chance in the sixth inning when Andrew Marmor got aboard on an error, followed by a bunt single by Diego Cabral to put runners on first and second with none out. But a failed bunt, followed by a flyout and an inning-ending strikeout left North Hollywood scoreless.
North Hollywood freshman Eddie Torres pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing three hits, and his teammates provided errorless defense, but the Huskies just could not come through with key hits at the right time.
The Huskies finished 13-17, rebounding nicely after a 2-7 start, while Wilson is 14-9.
